        If you have an Android phone you can long press the number and block them but

        VM may come through.

          It depends on how you define "unwanted". If a specific person is calling you all the time, many phones have a feature to blacklist a specific number or specific pattern. I happen to block all calls from any number that shares the same CO as my phone, since these numbers are often spoofed. (CO = Central office First three digits of the 7-digit phone number. e.g. If the number is +1AAACCCXXXX any call that matches +1AAACCC is blocked) On an Android phone this is done in the settings of the call app.

           

          T-Mobile has also provided SCAM Blocking which is covered in this document Scam ID & Scam Block

          I use it and get very few unwanted calls.
